OptoNews: New PAC Project release - controller hostnames, legacy support

Posted by Jean Femia on Apr 1, 2015 5:39:00 PM

You'll get three great new features (and more) in our latest PAC Project release:

  • Use either a hostname or an IP address to identify your control engine (you'll really appreciate this feature if you have multiple controllers)
  • Upgrade legacy systems by replacing the SNAP processor on a B-series mounting rack with the new SNAP-PAC-R1-B.
  • Change the unit type on an I/O unit, for example if you replace a SNAP PAC brain with a rack-mounted controller, or an Ultimate I/O brain with a SNAP-PAC-R1-B.

OptoNews Tech tip: A mobile interface for... Optomux?

Posted by Jean Femia on Apr 1, 2015 5:33:00 PM

And the answer is: YES

I know it sounds like an April Fool's joke, but it's really true: you can build a groov mobile interface for your older Optomux system.
